Andrey Berezin, guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

Namaste from Nepal!  Today, the group climbed the Mera La pass, 5400 meters high, for full acclimatization. Along the way, we mastered and remembered the skills of walking in crampons, as well as ways to move along snowy slopes with an ice pick. We did all this in the morning, rested after lunch, gained strength before tomorrow.  And tomorrow we will go up to the assault camp at 5800, from where we will start to the summit at night from October 30 to October 31. There will be no contact with us for a couple of days.
